    I'm relatively new to the forums, and I browsed them right as I did my first build a few months back. Big waste of money, but it's good enough for me as a first build heh.
    I've been looking as some of the mods on this forum, and I'm considering doing some cable sleeving and changing the molex plug both over to UV sensitive ones. I'm not sure if I should or not, what color etc, but I want some input. Maybe you could see something else that I could do?

    Pictures of my case insides (taken on my phone):

    Some specs of my PC:
    AMD Phenom x4 9950 @ 2.6ghz
    nVidia Geforce 9800GT (If I can sell this thing, I wanna ge the ATi 4850x2, or else add a waterblock to quiten it down)
    4GB of Kingston DDR2 @ 800mhz
    Western Digital 750GB HDD
    Thermaltake Armor+ w/ LCS
    Dual 17" Monitors (Buying the BenQ 2400W next week)

    Please don't inform me that the 9800 and case was a waste of money either, I realise this but i'm 17 and had the money to spend. Oh well
    As for the mod, I'm thinking I might replace the stock fan on the back with another Zalman /w Blue LEDs.
    As for the cables, I was considering yellow molex with green cables/shrinkwrap?

    Any ideas/comments are appreciated.

    (Maybe) me too!

    Sounds good.

    Case got a side window? Maybe you could put one in with a customer patter/design of some sort?

    Throw in some UV cold cathodes and you're set.

    Some cable management wouldn't go astray either.

    Totally agree - I did mine a month back, and it's made the biggest difference by far - only took one can of matte black too. Just make sure it's clean first, and you'll be right.

    Grab some black electrical tape and bundle some of the loose wires, just hides them easily. Those two things will make a hell of a difference.

    One of the many reasons I want to get an Antec 902 case, they come painted black inside.

    Whatever you do, don't paint it, then scratch it!
